Keeping Warm this Winter

As the winter months are approaching we are all beginning to think about how we are going to keep warm this winter.  We can look at the animal kingdom for some examples.  The polar bear survives frigid, arctic temperatures with an outside layer of fur that is only about 2 inches thick.  A Canada Goose can have between 20 and 25 thousand feathers.  Many of them are down feathers which are used to keep the bird warm by fluffing them up which creates a warm layer of air and feathers.  Marine mammals are equipped with a layer of blubber to keep their bodies warm in the cold ocean temperatures.

It’s no surprise that fur, feathers, and blubber are not an efficient way for us to stay warm during the cold, winter months.  We light a fire, use a warm blanket, or even crank up the thermostat despite the large bill.  One way we often overlook is heat and cold transfer through the garage door.

Our garage doors are the largest moving objects in our homes.  Having an insulated garage door can regulate the transfer of hot and cold air.  There are many reasons this is important:

1-If your garage is attached to your home, air from the garage can transfer from the garage to your living space very easily.

2-If your garage is a work area, having an insulated door will make it more comfortable working in the colder months.  An insulated door will also reduce unwanted noise from the street.

3- If you have a living space above the garage, temperature can easily travel through the garage ceiling, causing the room above to drastically change in temperature.  Keeping the garage within a smaller temperature window will help maintain the temperature of the room above.

4-An insulted door is more aesthetically pleasing than a non-insulated door because it adds a more finished look to your garage.  It is also quieter when opening and closing.

An insulated garage door can make a big difference in the comfort and efficiency of your home.  However you choose to keep warm this winter, we hope you enjoy the season with family and friends.

No power? No problem.

Using your front door is a thing of the past– most of us go inside through our garage door. Do you even carry a house key anymore? Most don’t.

Last Thursday night we had a power outage here in Orange County that affected over 120,000 homes and offices. (ABC Local) If you were planning on using your garage door or gate during that 3 hour window, you were either locked in or out. We look to our garage doors and gates for security but when the power goes we become trapped.

Here at Entry Systems we received many calls due to the power outage. Our advice– be prepared before it happens again.  We know the only time you think about your gate and garage door is when it’s broken, but you need to be prepared for the unexpected.

My favorite story is from a power outage that happened about a year ago. I know a woman in her 50’s who fortunately had a neighbor who was able (and willing) to climb up the second story balcony to let himself in through the sliding door! If only her door still worked.

We want you to be able to depend on your garage door or gate, even when the power goes out. That’s why we are currently including the battery backup with any LiftMaster 8360 or 8550 garage door opener that is installed. Gate operators that come with the battery back up are the CSW24V and CSL24V. We’re here to help.
